FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:

 

Purchased by her current owner in 2011, this late model (hull no.73 of 92 built)  fully ORC-optimised example of the hugely successful and extremely competitive IMX-38 offers blistering performance and outstanding value for money. Comprehensively upgraded and refitted in her current ownership, her highlights include:-

  • Overhauled engine with very low hours
  • Replacement rudder bearings and bushes
  • Overhauled and re-wired mast
  • Replacement standing rigging
  • Navtec backstay adjuster with textile stay
  • Extended carbon spinnaker pole
  • Huge recent sail wardrobe with carbon and Kevlar laminates
  • Upgraded B&G/Simrad navigiation instruments including plotter, autopilot and mast-mounted 20/20’s

 

Extremely well maintained and carefully sailed, COS I XTY8 offers a very inexpensive entry into competitive racing or even just fast cruising.

 

DESIGNER’S COMMENTS:

 

The good looks of the X-382 were obvious from the moment she emerged from the production mould. She was so appealing that the idea was born to create a new racer/cruiser that would perform well under the dominant IMS international handicap rule.
